Well we just finished up a wonderful week with my grandchildren spending the week with us. By day we were in the garden picking all the wonderful bounty and by night at bible school. I have picture proof grandchildren can really do some manual labor, sweat and at the end of the day ask what are we doing tomorrow nana.
First we have Gracie picking the squash.
JT and Gracie picking cucumbers and squash
This was actually early in the morning too before the sun got too hot. They did as we ask without too much complaining. Now they know all the different vegetables in the garden by sight. Good job kids.
Gracie now picking string beans.
Now we have JT and Gracie picking string beans.
Proof I'm not lying this was their second pan of beans.
Now what happens after about an hours worth of work...lol.. But the beans were picked.
I also have proof that with 5 people in a garden at one time wow work gets done so I took a picture to prove we had great help this week getting up all the veggies. Only one missing from this picture is me.
Now in the afternoons when its too hot to be out in the garden we sit in the shade and string beans and shell peas. I can't tell you what a difference it makes to have help to get all the gardening work done from the picking to the preparing and then the canning. This has been a wonderful week.
For all my dear friends at Duke you can see I have made good use of the swing you gave me for retirement. I love it especially when I get a chance to sit in it.
